Munich and which one - Rhineland or Prague?

Jump to last reply

Hi all - We're making plans for 10 days in Europe in late May/early June 2014, traveling with our 8-yr-old. We know that we want to spend 5 to 6 days in Munich, which we have been to and loved. Now it's down to which place to pair with it: either the Rhineland or Prague.

For us, the primary draws for the Rhineland would be Aachen Cathedral and Burg Eltz as well as some of the other Rhine castles. (I am a medieval history nut.) We will be staying on Marriott points for the entire trip, so could base in Cologne, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf or Wiesbaden. We could fly direct from the U.S. into either Frankfurt or Dusseldorf. Most likely, we'd rent a car in our base city and then return it once we arrive in Munich.

On the other hand, Prague is tempting because it seems so beautiful and evocative, and I would love to experience the Czech Republic, which none of us have visited. If we chose that option, we'd use public transport exclusively within and between Munich and Prague.

Given the time of year, the age of our son and any factors I might not have considered, any recommendations on which place would have the edge? TIA...
